Kyzyl project

Kyzyl remains one of the best development-stage gold projects in the world and is now the main source of medium-term growth for Polymetal. With its large high-grade reserves, long mine life and low-capital intensity, it is set to create significant shareholder returns — even at current commodity price levels. Kyzyl has achieved the start-up of the concentrator one quarter ahead of the original schedule and below the original million budget.

It has 7,167 Koz of gold reserves (GE) with 7.8 g/t average reserve grade. Estimated life of mine (Bakyrchik) is over 25 years. IRR (upgraded from feasibility study with Amursk POX expansion) is 20%.


Sustained greenfield and brownfield exploration programmes are key to our long-term growth, alongside the cost-effective drive to increase our resource base through the development of next-generation assets.
